Sad to say that scammers are trying all sorts of tricks at the moment.  

In particular, anyone asking for payment for COVID test kits or TV Licences is not genuine.

Please be especially careful with unsolicited emails and phone calls.  Do not give out any personal information, no matter how convincing the caller seems. If in doubt, get advice before doing anything.

Sing yourself happy!

Wednesday 18th November 3.30pm

Singing is a great way to lift your spirits in difficult times. Here is a chance to sing your heart out, even if you can’t sing in tune!

Choirs don’t work well on Zoom because of the variation in sound delay, but this is different. We have a play list of easy to sing, familiar songs, with the words displayed on the screen. You join the zoom meeting and you can see and speak to your fellow U3A singers. When we play the track, everyone is muted. You can hear the soundtrack, you can see the words, you can see others singing but they can’t hear you! So go for it! Sing along and raise the roof! What could be better?

After the singing, the meeting will remain open for you to stop and chat

The Zoom meeting details will be sent out shortly before the meeting to everyone who has given us an email address, so if you receive the newsletter on email you will be included.  No need to register but do put the date in your diary now! At the time of the meeting just enter the meeting id and passcode to join.

We all need a bit of fun in our life right now, so why not join in?

See you there.

Christmas Zentangle

Thursday 12th November 10.30am on Zoom

Looking for inspiration for making your Christmas Cards?  

This could be the solution.

The Zentangle method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns called tangles.  Anyone can do it - you don’t need any artistic skill. To get started all you need is a black pen and a piece of plain white paper.

This zoom session will show you how to create some simple tangles and combine them to make a Zentangle Christmas Tree.  Why not give it a try?

To take part email me and I will send out a meeting link that you can click to join. If you haven’t used zoom before but have access to the internet with a tablet (iPad or Android), or laptop, let me know and I’ll help you get set up.

I look forward to seeing you.
